Long Beach, California
How was this four years ago? I was interning at the LiNK office and Deanna was a grad student in Bakersfield. She came by to visit me and we went on a little date in Long Beach.
Over the weekend, we got to recount the story of our first year together to a friend. It was a great year where we figured out how to make things work despite being in different states, and occasionally continents. It also made being near each other the following year so much better.
Time can move at a scary speed, but it also makes some things beautiful in a way that nothing else can.
